Getting reviews...
This version of Lemon Meringue Pie gets a sophisticated update by deconstructing the pie. The graham cracker, lemon curd, and meringue are layered in individual glasses for a dramatic effect.

Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust

Lemon Curd

Swiss Meringue

Directions

  1. For the graham cracker crust: Weigh and mix your dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a stand mixer, cream the butter with both sugars and honey until thoroughly combined. Add to the butter/sugar mixture until just combined. Roll between two pieces of parchment paper to a ¼-inch thickness. Freeze 20 minutes. Note: Please refer to the written recipe for measurements as they've been adjusted from the video.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Remove top sheet of parchment and bake 30 minutes until brown. When cool, break up pieces and pulse in a food processor until it resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside at room temperature.
  3. For the lemon curd: In a saucepan whisk eggs, sugar and lemon juice and slowly bring to a boil, stirring the whole time (to prevent the eggs from cooking). Place through a strainer with a ladle or a China cap into a blender and with the motor on, add butter, a little at a time until emulsified. Set aside.
  4. For the Swiss meringue: Place egg whites and sugar in a bowl set over simmering water and whisk until sugar is dissolved. Transfer to the bowl of a stand mixer and whip until soft peaks form. Set aside. Note: Please refer to the written recipe for measurements as they've been adjusted from the video. To assemble: Place graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of a serving glass and layer lemon curd followed by more graham cracker crumbs 3 times. Top with a dollop of meringue. Run a kitchen torch across the top for a toasty finish.
